FOREWORD 



Tho United States is considered to have the host agricultural statistics in 
the world. By the same token, the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service 
endeavors to furnish the growers of this State with the hest vegetable statistics 
available. Moreover, these statistics are constantly being improved and made more 
comprehensive to meet the demand for more accurate and precise information. 
Farmers, businessmen, administrators, and legislators have come to rely more and 
more on statistics--to tell them what is happening, to show them where their econ- 
omic problems are, and to assist them in finding answers. Statistics also serve 
as guidelines both for current activities and for planning ahead. 

To be of value, statistics must be used. To be used properly one must know 
what they represent. What definitions are used? How the data are obtained, tabu- 
lated, and analyzed? What is their degree of accuracy and reliability? and finally, 
one must guard against misinterpretation and attempts to make improper application. 

The purpose of this publication is to present in summary form the more im- 
portant and basic information that growers are likely to need, in planning and ana- 
lyzing their individual operations with respect to production and marketing problems. 
The first step in the solution of any problem is to understand the nature of the 
problem. In this respect, statistics can be most helpful. Complete historical 
data serve as a benchmark for plotting a future course. Their greatest value comes 
with an understanding of the past and an alertness for discerning the future. The 
Crop Reporting Service, also issues monthly reports on the acreage and potential 
production of vegetable crops by seasons (fall, winter, spring, and summer.) This 
timely periodic information when properly used should encourage judicious planting 
and more orderly marketing programs. The ready availability of facts, both current 
and historic, should exert a much needed stabilizing influence in an industry that 
is very sensitive to either real or imaginary changes. 



ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF CONTRIBUTORS 



Through the joint efforts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Office 
of the Statistical Reporting Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture and the 
Department of Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Experiment Stations, University 
of Florida, data are presented on the acreage, production, and value of 18 vege- 
table crops. 

With the exception of the shipment information, the data contained herein are 
estimates and are based on reports by, and interviews with growers, shippers, 
marketing associations and organizations, seedsmen, railroad representatives, 
canners, and other processors. We gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each 
person and organization contributing to the development of these data. 

V»e further acknowledge the assistance extended by such agencies as the 
Florida State Marketing Bureau, the Agricultural Extension Service through its 
county agricultural agents, the Federal-State Inspection and Market News Services, 
the Florida State Marketing Board, the State Plant Board, and other informed 
sources. 

Much credit is due our entire clerical personnel for the painstaking work 
they have done in preparing this booklet for publication. 



USEES OF AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS 



Agricultural estimates are, first of all, released "by the Government to the farmers, business- 
men, consumers, and others who must make a wide variety of individual decisions, based on the best 
facts obtainable. The same estimates are also used by the legislative, judicial v and executive 
branches of Federal and State Governments in many different ways. Some of the leading uses are byl 



1» Individual farmers J in working-out their 
planting, breeding f feeding, and marketing 
programs. 

TCOI.I ■ . - -.- - . • ' ,. ; . ■ 

2. Farmers' service organizations in keeping 
abreast of current agricultural problems and 
in determining their policies. 

3« Farmers* cooperatives J in planning their . 
purchasing, sales, and marketing programs. 

4. Processors, dealers, and handlers of agri- 
cultural products; in planning where to estab- 
lish their" plants, determining the source and 
volume of their raw products, and the size of 
their operations, and in marketing their pro- 
ducts. ' ; . 

5« Railroads and other transport services} in 
determining the number of cars and trucks need- 
ed to move the agricultural products of parti- 
cular areas. The- statistical data on produc- 
tion and time of harvest enable these carriers 
to distribute their equipment where it is most 
needed. This is especially important with 
perishable products such as fruits and vege- 
tables. 

6. Operators of warehouses and other storage 
facilities} in planning storage for each 
year's crops and livestock products. 

7' Industrial organizations, manufacturers, 
jobbers, merchants, and mail-order houses, 
particularly those with farm customers or cus- 
tomers processing or packing farm products; in 
planning their production, sales, inventories, 
and advertising programs, in order to provide 
the farmer with goods he needs when he needs 
them.. 

8. Banks, insurance and credit organizations; 
in calculating the risks in financing farm pro- 
duction, storage and marketing; in managing 
farm properties under their control; or in 
insuring farmers against crop failures, live- 
stock losses, and so on. 

9. Editors and writers for farm and trade 
papers, newspapers, and radio service; in 
developing background for articles and pro- 
grams of timely interest and value to farmers. 

10c The President and his Council of Economic 
Advisers; in reporting on the several sectors of 
the national economy, 'including agriculture and

cited} the foregoing list gives only a broad out- 
line of the significance of an adequate agricul- 
tural statistical reporting program to the nat- 
ional economy as a whole, and to the economy of

INDEX 



Each crop generally carries the following sequence of data by season! Name of crop; 
iicres for harvest by counties; Acreage, production and value; State summary; Acreage and 
production by counties and areas, 1959-60; Shipping data, and average monthly prices. Crops 
that harvest in more than one season are then combined in one total grouping classified as 
"all" and appears before the breakdown by seasonal groupings.

• . SHIPMENT DATA ADJUSTED * 

• ~ . . • . * 



The heavier package loading of rail cars in recent years has made it necessary to adjust ' 

# the shipment data for earlier years in order to give uniformity to historical comparisons. 
# The rail and truck shipment data presented in this bulletin has been adjusted as follows? 



„ Rail - Data for all years prior to the 1958-59 season have been adjusted to the average 

t number of packages per car in 1958-59. Data for the 1958-59 and 1959-60 seasons 

, are unadjusted. 

m Trvtck--Eata for all years prior to the 1959-60 season have been adjusted to approximate- 

» ly the average number of packages per rail car in 1958-59. Data for the fall 

1959 season were adjusted. Data after January 1, I960 were not adjusted. 

, Bail 1 mized car equivalents, truck equivalents, and total shipments are presented in 

^seasonal groups for your convenience. Anyone desiring original car loadings - rail, mixed 

,car, and truck equivalents, can obtain this information by contacting the Agricultural 

„ Statistician, 1222 Woodward Avenue, Orlando, Florida. --■■'• - _ 



DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

SEASONAL GROUPINGS - In order that competitive production within the State "of Florida and the 
United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform groups, we have 
established a National pattern which is based on the most active harvesting 1 periods. These 
major groups are WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL. The WINTER group 1 includes the months of 
January, February, and March; SPRING includes April, May, and June; SUMMER includes July, Aug- 
ust, and September (Florida carries no official summer commercial crops) J and FALL includes 
October, November, and December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period 
for a particular grouping may extend into the preceding or following group. However, in arrang- 
ing our data we have followed .these groupings in so far as it is practical. For example, it has 
been considered practical to carry cabbage, cauliflower, escarole, lettuce, and strawberries as 
one season crops, designating them WINTER' since the volume production is harvested generally 
during January, February, and March. Since some systematic order of grouping is necessary it 
is deemed best for all concerned to handle our classifications on a National basis even though 
they may not always agree with some local designations now in use. 

PLANTED ACREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" concept. 
Estimates of pTanted acres for any seasonal grouping consist of acres for harvest (see next 
paragraph) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for harvest during 
the season, but which was lost or destroyed and did not produce a crop in the season under con- 
sideration. If the acreage is lost and not replanted it is counted as planted . If it is lost 
but replanted for harvest in the same season as the original acreage would have been harvested, 
the acreage replanted is not considered as additional acreage planted. However, if the acreage 
lost is replanted for harvest in a later season, it is considered as planted for both seasons 
and as acres for harvest only for the latter season. 

ACRES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from which a crop could have been 
harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) warranted the harvest. It 
includes mature acreage on which the harvest was postponed or delayed too long due to economic 
reasons and the production lost thereby. Acreage which produces such low yields or poor quality 
that the crop is not worth picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is 
not included in the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces yields which would 
be harvested at reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 



YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merchantable quality produced on an acre basis 
and may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic reasons. 



PRODUCTION - Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres for harvest . Pro- 
duction of value is that part of the production which was harvested and sold or utilized 
and does not include economic abandonment. 



ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT - This category includes mature production not harvested because of 
economic factors, such as low prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss of production 
includes quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as production on acreage 
abandoned for economic reasons. In the production tables in this book, economic abandon- 
ment is the difference between the total production and the production of value. 

Acreage abandoned at any stage of growth before maturity will be considered as loss 
of acreage or crop failure rather than economic abandonment of production. 

AVERAGE PRICE - All prices used in this report are per hundredweight on an f.o.b. basis 
or its equivalent, less selling charges. (Comparable average prices per standard unit 
is shown in parenthesis). Average monthly prices are shown with comparisons. These 
prices are followed by a table showing the percent of rail, mixed car and truck equiva- 
lents moving each month. 



TOTAL VALUE - The total value is the average price per hundredweight times the production 
of value. 



CANNED OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AND PRODUCTION - The acreage of vegetables in Florida planted 
solely for canning and other processing purposes during the period covered by this publi- 
cation has been confined principally to cucumbers for pickles, spinach, and a realtively 
small percent of the bean crop. The greater part of the bean acreage and all the tomato 
acreage is planted primarily for fresh market, but each year substantial quantities of 
each commodity are canned or frozen. 

■ d . ' ■ ' ' ■ 

In order to show the utilization of the production from the acreage of beans and 
tomatoes brought to harvest, three columns on production are used in the State Summar- 
ies. The first shows the total production, the second shows the production sold for 
fresh market consumption, and the third shows the production sold for processing (either 
canned or frozen). Production abandoned for economic reasons is the total production 
minus the sum of the production for fresh market and processing. 

Those desiring to know the equivalent acreage utilized foT processing should divide 
the number of hundredweight processed by the average yield, fresh and processing, then 
generally round to the nearest hundred. The prices given for processed beans and tomatoes 
are based on a per ton price and reduced to a per hundredweight price (rounded to the near 
est whole cent). 



MIXED CAR MOVEMENT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months on Page 
71. These data include the equivalent cars shown in our regular shipment data under each 
specific crop carried in this publication.
